Lingering aroma sweet
Easing us into autumn’s retreat;
Ending their journey at my feet.
Silently resting; their life cycle now complete.
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:5 Holy Bible NIV
Each new day I face the unknown
Seemingly all by myself; all alone.
I follow a path I can’t fully see
Where danger sometimes eludes me.
It is an ongoing trek into the future;
A solo journey I continue to endeavor.
Since my youth, I have been walking this path
And only the Lord knows how long it will last.
I try to travel in sweet content and joyfulness
Trying to remember God is near, and through him I’m blessed.
But some days are harder to strain and see
The love and goodness that the Lord is showing me.
I sometimes miss the sun and rainbows in life
As I face obstacles and endure strife.
Because I’m too worried and too wrapped in deep doubt
As if I’ve been swallowed by a thick, foreboding thundercloud.
I stumble in the pit of that deep dark night
Yearning to see a comforting and glowing light.
Something to rekindle my lost and trampled hope;
Someone to help me rise with courage and cope.
I stumble around as my mind and heart cannot see
And then fall down ever so continuously.
Finally, I pause to rest and lo, I find a friend
For Jesus had come seeking me yet again.
For in this world of worry I can find peace
When I stop to remember Jesus is with me.
For he promises to never ever leave
And that no one can snatch me from thee.
Out of the darkness I emerge again
Seeing the rainbows and the sun.
So as I continue this solo journey on my own,
I’m again reminded that I am not really all alone.
